Re: Ladies and gents, I give you the On-One packraft.

not shy, on-one, are they? the Geoff bar recently and this - id seen brant messing around with an alpacka recently. hard to tell on instagram, but I reckon It would be hard to tell this and that apart. not quite sure what to think of it all.

hope they've got the seaming technique sorted....

Re: Insulated Gilet - Primaloft or similar

I use an endura insulated vest and its FAB.great cut for riding and way warmer than you'd expect from the weight and packability.

Re: A problem that you didn't know you had until today....

Zippy - this one is a Warco super mini - its pretty good all in all for a starter lathe....I had zero experience with machine tools until I bought it and its been a steep learning curve with youtube and help from friends who know what they are doing...id recommend if you are teetering! so much fun!

Re: A problem that you didn't know you had until today....

Moder-dye thanks! :-) I might be misunderstanding but just in case! - the point of the top tube bag loop is that it rotates, so when you steer, the bag stays inline with the frame! so needs to be 3+ pieces!

thanks JohnClimber - its been cool to see some of these things get out there and be of use to folk! the idea initially came about because of bike packing in the Cairngorm - get some of the fine sandy stuff under a strap and it quickly wears away at whatever is underneath. the DeWidget allowed mounti...
